I just received my shipment of this book and immediately began to review it. I ended up reading the book cover to cover. It has a good balance between pictures and narrative portions. It was great to see the hope, optimism, and pride captured in the faces of the people photographed at the rallies, restaurants, etc. Viewing the pictures reminded me of the events and feelings that I experienced over the past two years of the campaign. One thing --I would have liked to see a picture of the Obama family in Chicago on the stage after the victory included. This is a book to savor and to take time studying each photo. The photographs were detailed and spoke volumes. I am glad that I had the foresight to purchase (in advance)enough books to give as gifts to my children and grandchildren. I am certain that this book will "fly" off the shelves once the word gets out. It is a wonderful keepstake. Thank you Scout for your work in recording this historical time in American history. It is definitely work to be proud of.
